George Gilman, who is so capably and acceptably filling the office of postmaster of the city of Madison, Kan., was born on his father's farm in Greenwood county on March 26, 1876, a son of John and Mary F. (Shaw) Gilman, a review of whom precedes this article. He acquired his education in the schools of his native county and was graduated from the Madison High School with the class of 1894. Subsequently he completed a two-years course in the State Normal School at Emporia, and a one-year term in Kansas University. In 1900 he established the Madison "News," of which he was the editor and publisher until 1906, when he became assistant postmaster, under his father, at Madison. On the retirement of the elder Gilman, in 1911, he was appointed to succeed him and has since filled that office with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of his townspeople. He is a Republican and has been active in party affairs. His fraternal affiliations are with the Knights of Pythias, and he is one of the active and influential members of this order in Kansas. He was elected, in May, 1913, grand prelate of the Grand Lodge of Kansas. Mr. Gilman is unmarried.
